Back from The Ball

Well, The BardHaven Ball is History…and what a History it was too.

The party went on for four hours, at times more then 40 people were stomping about my family burial ground, trying to wake the dead…some even succeeded.

Truly, it was the stuff of Legend.

Absinthe Falling

In the midst of the weekend a celebration was held in Winterfell Undertow to commemorate a milestone in Metaverse History. Namely, the one year anniversary of the founding of the first Winterfell Sim.

As could be expected, the Senschal Serra Anansi, Dark Lady of Winterfell held court at the gala dance, during which she had several exciting announcements for Winterfallen and Caledonians alike.

October Beckons…

The first chills of Halloween can be felt behind the wind, and so it is time for yours truly, The Dread Baron, to begin seeking out the macabre and unusual for your nightmarish reflections in beloved Caledon.

I begin with the work of a fine and decidedly insane Steampunk Master of the Macabre, the artist Alex cf. He has created many impressive artworks that illustrate the darker side of steampunk and the Neo-Victorian aesthetic, and he has out done himself with what I present for your pleasure today…

Behold…the Bio Aetheric Laboratory!

A Moment of Silence

Another of my heroes has left the stage. Marcel Marceau was the first famous performer I ever saw live. I remember it vividly since it was also my first trip to the downtown Civic Theatre. As awed as I was by the surrounding and the “grown up” situation, I was still transfixed by Marceau’s craft.

Mimes are held up for mockery and derision these days (and my god, considering what passes as pantomime these days who can blame you) but Marcel Marceau was something so far beyond the street corner clown.

He was an artist, and artists never truly die.

Alivah Shulum, Adon.

Another Harbinger of the Apocalypse

At this point, nearly everyone with an email account has encountered the strange phenomenon of the LOLCats. Yes, those pictures of cute little animals with nonsensical, sarcastic “‘faux leet speak” captions have swept the globe several times over…and even I admit to smiling at a few of them.

This internet fad, disturbing as it is, doesn’t hold a candle to the fear and horror inspired by a slight variation on it which I recently discovered. Yes, the fuzzy kittens of the LOLCats have been replaced with something much darker that inspires insanity in the weak minded and smells like tuna.

I have the dubuious honor to present to you…LOLthulhu.

Idle Chat

It is with a great deal of concern that I have been noticing a troubling tendency of late within Caledon, one which I find to be highly destructive. Thankfully, it rarely occurs with malicious intent in our fair Caledon, but in some ways, the fact that by and large it’s damage is dispensed accidentally and carelessly makes it all the worse.

I speak, of course, of the sharing of private, real life information, both concerning ourselves and others. This practice is a bane throughout the Multiverse, especially in a place founded on polite respect as Caledon is.
